My name is Santiago and I like to draw

I did these drawings when I was six. My dad is an illustrator and he did the drawing of me in this blog and my mom is an art teacher. They both have blogs so I told them I wanted to be able to show my friends and family my drawings and have a blog too. They are helping me write this and put it together.
I started drawing all the time when I was two and have filled up hundreds of sketchbooks. I like to use sharpies best and I am always careful to put the caps back on so they don't dry out. They make the best lines and the colors are really great. I live in a loft in downtown San Diego and also have a home in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. This summer I was in Mexico and had such a great time. One of my favorite things to do is hike in the botanical garden and I have included drawings of it so you can see what it looks like. My friend Pierre came to visit us with his family this past summer and he really liked it too. We both got a map and I love to look at mine, I like maps and tried to draw my drawing like a map so people would know what it looks like. I also love New York and Paris but I have only been there in books.
